The Greatest Movie Ever Sold
In the mood for some lighthearted learning this Friday afternoon? If you are, then let me recommend the documentary The Greatest Movie Ever Sold (2011), directed by Morgan Spurlock, the man behind Supersize me (2004).
The concept: to make a film about product placement in films. The twist: to have that film completely sponsored by products, that is, to include as much product placement as possible. The goal: to make us as viewers aware of the amount of product placement in films.
The documentary is entertaining, easy-going and light-hearted. No shocking revelations are made, but you don’t always need the shock effect. Sometimes it’s just nice to watch something fun (and you do get to learn about products such as Head’n’Mane).
So if you would like to see a documentary, but can’t face the really heavy stuff, this is the thing for you.
